The perfect woollen travel cardi – easy to wash, easy to wear and packed with performance benefits.
When we set out to design the perfect woollen travel cardigan, we knew we had to start with the right fabric. There was only one choice - extrafine merino wool.
Merino wool is nature’s finest technical fabric and is really efficient at regulating body temperature in a wide range of conditions. It’s cosy in the cold but helps regulate excess body heat when the temperature starts to rise.
Because it's a natural fabric it breathes well and wicks moisture extremely efficiently, this means you won't experience that clammy chill when you stop to have a rest and cool down.
We specify an extremely high quality of fibre, making our Extrafine Merino Knitted Cover-up Cardi incredibly soft and luxuriously comfortable - with none of the coarseness associated with ordinary wool.
Merino wool has another remarkable property which makes it particularly suitable for travel. It breathes really well and stays fresher, longer than synthetic substitutes making it perfect for the long haul.
100% extrafine merino wool.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.
All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.
